So, who does Obama think is the biggest threat to America? You would like to think he would say terrorists, but no, it’s conservatives in Congress who don’t bow down and approve of his policies. The Founding Fathers thought an executive branch that was too powerful was actually one of the biggest threats to freedom, it’s pretty ironic that Obama is saying the exact opposite.
From the Daily Caller:
Political conservatives are the greatest threat to the nation, President Barack Obama suggested in a kid-glove interview with the New York Times.
“The president mused, the biggest threat to America — the only force that can really weaken us — is us,” said the interviewer, Thomas Friedman.
“Our politics are dysfunctional… societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions,” said Obama, who repeatedly claims to be a moderate stymied by the GOP’s supposed obstructionism and radicalism.
“And the more diverse the country is, the less it can afford to take maximalist positions,” Obama added.
I guess it makes sense for Obama to think this. This is the same guy that traded five of the most dangerous terrorists in the world for a dishonest army deserter that will end up causing countless US deaths.
